Because I'm always working on the cars of my clients, I haven't had any time to work on a project of my own, but I will soon. I do have a 93' Mazda 626 which I do plan to work on this coming spring. Hear are some of the cars I have worked on this year. I will post more pictures of more cars I have worked on later.

My friend and fellow club member Picos had me paint his 83 Regal. He picked out a Fireball red Metalic as a base, and left the rest up to me. So I went with black patterns covered in 3oz's of flake, Clear/Metalic red mix, candy apple red, and toped with 1.5 Gal's of Clear. Receantly Picos ran into a ditch and though the car wasn't baddly damaged, it will need a new fender. He is rebuilding his engine now, but will need that new fender soon. I horafy at the thought of trying to match that paint.:ugh: Wish me luck.
The picturs are not that good because my scanner sucks. Trust me they look way better up close, and the flake will blind you.






This is my friend and fellow club member Qora's Nissan. He let me do what ever for the paint as long as it was orenge. I picked out a 3 stage Lambergini orenge, but If I would have known how much the stuff was going to cost I would have gone with House of Kolor candi orenge. This Lambergini paint cost lots of $$. I started with a silver base, orenge midcoat, midcoat clear, black aztech style paterns, 2oz's of orenge-gold flake, and 1.5 gal's of clear.






Hear is a picture of my brother Gonzo's 63 Impalla SS. He saw it rusting away in some old man's back yard. He paid $1500 for it. It was rusted, no engin or tranny, and the interior had been gutted. As soon as he brought it home he got to work by removing the frame. That's when I took this picture. He wants to do a compleat frame up restoration. So far he has spent over $2000 in parts and the frame is now finished and better then new. I will post pics of it later.



Well I hope you like some of my work. I will post more later.

I live in bridgport washington

I couldn't find any pictures of the patterns being layd out, but let me tell you it was a bitch. I did them all my self with only slite help from my little bro, but it took like 16 hours strate just to lay out the masking and fine-line tape. But get this it all had to be done twice. Cause we thougth that the lambergini 3stage paint was like a regulare 3stage candy, I laid the patterns over the silver base and under the orenge midcoat. As it turned out the orenge midcoat wasn't as transperent as we thought. By the 3rd coat you could bearly see the patterns underneath. So after sealing it all in clear I scuffed and redid the patterns ontop of the orenge. At the end it all worked out because the black and orenge combo realy make the truck stand out.

lol, ya it was. The outside paint is a couple years old, but it wasn't tell now that the owner dicided he wanted the undercaradge, frame, and the rest of the stuff done too.............In other wards.......It was all done backwords.

The funny thing is.......in a couple more years, it will be ready for a new overall paint job.......So I'm allready thinking of some new ideas for it.....It will stay orange, but thats all i know so far.
